When I first opened the box, I was a little bummed to find a scrape in the red paint, but after I installed them, you really don't see any cosmetic defect. The caliper pins don't move freely enough, so you may need to remove them and add some grease. After bleeding the brakes, things still seemed a bit squishy, so I bled all four brakes again the next day. Still a bit squishier than the originals, yet they are very responsive and we stop just fine. They look great through the chrome, too!
